More people are landing in ER this year due to winter weather

IOWA CITY, Iowa (KWWL) — As the winter snow and ice continues, more and more people are finding themselves in the emergency room because of it.

The late winter hitting eastern Iowa almost feels like a broken record. People keep digging their homes out of snow, just to get buried again.

“It’s just been a lot of snow. I feel like every time the snow melts it comes back. It’s a lot of shoveling over and over again,” one Iowa City man said as he shoveled his sidewalk.
